Fire Safety

Fire safety refers to the measures that are taken to prevent and minimize the risk of fire and to ensure the safety of individuals and property in the event of a fire. Some important aspects of fire safety include fire prevention, early detection, fire suppression, and evacuation planning.

Here are some tips to improve fire safety:

  1. Install smoke detectors: Smoke detectors are an important early warning system and should be installed on every level of your home or building. Make sure to test them regularly and replace the batteries at least once a year.
  2. Keep flammable materials away from heat sources: Store flammable liquids and materials in a cool, dry place away from heat sources such as stoves and heaters.
  3. Have a fire extinguisher: Keep a fire extinguisher in an easily accessible location and make sure everyone in the building knows how to use it.
  4. Have an evacuation plan: Develop and practice an evacuation plan with all occupants of the building. Ensure that everyone knows where the emergency exits are and what to do in case of a fire.
  5. Keep electrical equipment in good condition: Check electrical equipment regularly to ensure it is in good condition and not frayed or damaged.
  6. Avoid smoking inside: Smoking indoors is a leading cause of fires. If you must smoke, do so outside and properly dispose of cigarette butts.
  7. Know when to call for help: If a fire breaks out, do not attempt to put it out yourself unless you are trained to do so. Call the fire department immediately and evacuate the building.
  8.  Remember, fire safety is everyone's responsibility. By following these tips, you can help prevent fires and keep yourself and others safe.

To date, Whale Fire have carried out fire safety risk assessments at a number of our premises in central London and also at Gatwick, Southend and Bristol Airports. Richard provides us with a prompt, reliable and efficient service and I would be happy to recommend his services.

MoneyCorp - Ian Silverstone - Facilities & Premises Manager

Whale Fire completed a fire risk assessment and extinguisher installation on our training centre in Southwark. I found their service to be prompt and efficient as well as aware of the needs and restrictions of our site. They were quick to respond to our needs, despite delays from our end, the service was friendly throughout and they replaced only the necessary equipment. The risk assessment itself was detailed and has formed a large part of our on going risk assessments for the site. Construction Youth Trust will unquestionably use Whale Fire again.
